Press Release

Wayne Sorce: Color presents a remarkable selection Sorce’s luminous large-scale color photographs of urban environments taken mostly in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s in both Chicago and New York City. His urban landscapes describe, with a formal exactitude, the light, architecture, and palette of these cities within a certain era. For Sorce, the urban scene is both still and transitory; people appear in the photographs as both inhabitants, as well as sculptural forms relating to a larger composed scene.
